Consolidated Press Association PARIS Aug British propaganda throughout Europe is idly convincing continental opinion that America's imperialistic ambitions were the block to naval arms limitation Not only have British diplomatic representatives in every capital been furnished with data with which to set forth the British case but it is declared here on good authority that special agents have been dispatched from London to every important ter in the continent for the purpose of influencing the press Already the tone of many papers which at first were neutral as between England and America is changing and British arguments are set forth to the great disadvantage of the United FOR QUICK If is clear there is a concerted effort to persuade the world that whereas desires nothing but the of her commerce and communications United States is bent on that can serve only for offensive ends No account is taken of the fact that the foreign commerce of the United States is practically equal to that of Kingdom and that limiting cruisers to six-inch guns would place American trade at the i mercy of Great Britain because of the ease with which she could arm her of ships Simultaneously launching of the campaign in Europe against I bitions British propaganda in South America is reported to have been intensified IN SOUTH AMERICA Persons here in- with the South American continent declare even during the agents have been at in various ways The American policy in Mexico and tral America has been up as an example of the treatment to which South American countries will be subjected if States becomes strong enough in a naval way to defy the British navy which is represented as small states protector against Yankee aggression South America lions of people are declared ts have become convinced that the United desires a strong navy iii order that it a monopoly American trade and natural resources exploiting the mines and plantations in the interests of American capitalists and controlling markets in agricultural products Against such an organized campaign of propaganda emanating from don the government stands it declared and is doing nothing to combat it Many Euro- with Britain's methods are tlie United does not meet this with similar weapons and justify in the eyes of the world those acts it is now held up to universal brium HOLDS AFFECTIONS It is certain that so far as of Europe is concerned the United States has a stronger of the affections of nations than land has design Brit- ish to change this situation by and persistent propaganda has a good chance of succeeding The present risk is that such campaign as now is may in very short order place America in the position of Germany Germany's naval ambitions enabled England to link the continent pretty and if the continent be convinced that America similar ambitions the be very much thi same WESTERN TOWNS RECEIVE SHAKING Forecasts Success of Proposed County Fair in Coliseum Remarkable Pulls Shown on
